Description

Sam Mestman from We Make Movies, with a little help from Terry VerHaar from Scary Cow, will give a 90 minute presentation on real world production and post production strategies for the modern digital content creator that can save independent filmmakers tens of thousands of dollars. Apple Pro Video Apps Product Marketing will introduce the workflow session and be on hand afterwards to answer questions. Plus, there will be a wine & hors d'oeuvre reception prior to starting.

A few of the topics to be discussed are:

  • Selecting the right camera for your project - The pros and cons among RED, Arri, Canon, DSLR, and iPhone.
  • How to communicate with Camera, Sound, and Script Supervisors to save your self a ton of work and money in post production - so that your editor can literally find anything .
  • How to bring Post Production on-set - Some tools and strategies for how to get more out of your DIT, and how to include post production into your on-set workflow.
  • Strategies for managing notes, revisions, and working with your editor
  • What a 4K workflow looks like between Editorial, Color, Sound, and VFX department
  • How to make and monitor a DCP for festivals and theatrical release

All of the strategies discussed were recently done in the real world with We Make Movies’ first original 1/2 hour comedy pilot Off The Grid, which will screen at the end of the presentation.

Kick off the presentation by joining us for a free reception with wine and hors d'oeuvres from 7:00-7:45pm with multiple demo stations.

The presentation will begin at 7:45 sharp!
